About

In few words:

Directed by Elisabeth Platel, the Paris Opera Ballet School presents its annual production. To mark the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the death of Roland Petit, himself one of the school's offspring, the young pupils once more stage his first ballet, Les Forains, which depicts an itinerant company, with music by Henri Sauguet. In the same mountebank spirit, José Martinez’s Scaramouche brings to life the characters of the Commedia dell’ arte and, to the sound of a jazzy score by Darius Milhaud, draws us into the magic of Italian theatre. Finally, in an abstract choreography by Nils Christe, Symphony in Three Movements evokes the torments of war that inspired Stravinsky’s magnificent score. A whole range of different interpretations of the classical technique taught at the school that the audience will have the opportunity to discover on the occasion of these Demonstrations. For the space of an evening, the “Gala of 21st Century Ballet Schools” will also allow pupils from several international institutions to perform on the stage of the Palais Garnier.
